Toddler dies in Hummingbird Highway accident

Reports are that around noon on Monday, little Daisy Polanco was running across the highway in Saint Margaret’s Village when she was knocked down by a truck driven by forty-eight year Santos Turcios. Turcios told authorities that the child suddenly darted in front of him and there was no way to avoid a collision. A post-mortem has revealed that Polanco died from severe head and body injuries.
